5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic first album of Keith Tippett Group, 10 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Pianist, composer, arranger, Keith Tippett is one of the greatest jazz musicians of the last 40 years.
This is the first album of Kieth Tippett Group, featuring Elton Dean (alto sax and saxello), Marc Charig (cornet), Nick Evans (trombone), Jeff Clyne (bass) and Alan Jackson (drums).
"Stately Dance For Miss Primm" is a very masterpiece.
If you like Soft Machine of Third and Fourth albums, this is for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible amazing Keith Tippett!, 18 Nov. 2011
Keith Tippett is one of greatest jazz pianists of the contemporary music scene. After the collaborations in early albums of King Crimson (In the Wake of Poseidon, Lizard and Islands), and the solo albums of Progressive Jazz and Avant-garde (Dedicated to You... and the project with Centipede), Tippett's career hardly slowed with the end of the art rock boom in the late '70s. He continued with more intimate and impressionistic outfits such as Mujician. His bands always included sections of trumpet, trombone and saxes, and in this album we find his usual collaborators like Mark Charig (trumpet), Elton Dean (saxello, alto sax) and Nick Evans (trombone). Originally issued in 1986 as a double album, A Loose Kite... finally makes its CD debut in 2009, and allows us to relive a truly superb septet getting their collective teeth into Tippett's intricate charts and sweeping arrangements. The beginning of really amazing! Other musicians are Larry Stabbins (tenor and soprano sax), Paul Rogers (double bass) and Tony Levin (drums). The title of the main suite is a sentence taken from the book "I know why the caged bird sings" by Mayo Angelou. A great jazz reissued CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars great meeting between Classical minimalim & Hindi sound, 18 Nov. 2011
A very good collaboration between classical minimalism of Philip Glass and Hindi sounds of Ravi Shankar. Both of these artists have long taken intellectual approaches to music. The songs are brilliant and the symphony dominates the soundscapes, but Shankar's atmospheres are integral of the success of this project. The beautiful melodies flowing in dissonant orchestrations while strings and flutes are contrasted to the sitar and tablas. If you are a fan of Philip Glass and you like Hindi sounds, you must have this album. Unlosable!

3.0 out of 5 stars Good Hard Rock sound, 21 Nov. 2009
This review is from: Black Sabbath (Audio CD)
Black Sabbath, along with Deep Purple, Uriah Heep and few others, were the pioneers of Hard Rock in the period '70/'75. Then came the Heavy Metal...
These is the first album of Black Sabbath, released in 1970.
The first thing that strikes you immediately is the voice of Ozzy Osbourne, and his obsessions with evil and black magic. The powerful song is "The Wizard" with the Iommi's distorted guitar full of effects and a very strong rhythm section.
Very good also the apocalyptic title track, and their dubut single "Evil Woman (Don't You Play Your Game With me)".
Excellent remastering.
